Looking for a good DS Movie player that can play AVI files for M3. Ive looked but I'm new to this
You mean .gbm files?
no, AVI files
I recomend moonshell, it cannot play avi but its easy enough to convert them to .dpg
Is there an easy Apple program that can convert them to dpg?
That's a simpler conversion, and you can do it in most video converters.
awesome! thanks Veho! I'll give it a shot
There is a DPG converter for Mac but unless you pay for it it's limited to 5 minutes.
Best off using Tuna-viDS.
Actually there is also a dpg converter for Linux (and Mac and Windows xD) called dpg4x...I find it actually pretty neat. It's open source IIRC and has some neat little tricks that dpgtools doesn't have. This is actually a converter that I wouldn't mind recommending people.
I also found an online video conversion solution, works on my iBook:
Hope this helps!
The only time I'd really recommend using Tuna-viDS is when you have sync issues with DPG. For instance, I had some marching band videos that simply would not sync correctly no matter how I converted them to DPG. Using Tuna-viDS introduced some choppiness, but the ability to manually select the frame offset was a lifesaver.
For all intents and purposes though, you're better off finding a way to convert to DPG. While you can sorta fudge the 12 fps limit of Tuna-viDS if you're not using the full 256x192 resolution, it's still enough to be distracting for anything with any real motion.
